tail like a Chclidonura -- Mother Nature's 
form of a cephalaspid joke." 

Chris Kitting was in Lompoc on 31 May finding 
his way back to Hopkins Marine Station after 
the holiday. Chris is primarily working with 
limpets now under Dr. Donald Abbott. I have 
been told that Stuart Thompson is at Hopkins 
working with the neurophysiology of Melibe's 
swimming behavior. I hope to hear more about 
his research. 

A few years back we went through a discussion 
of standard color name systems. Here is what 
may become the definitive work on the subject: 
a National Bureau of Standards publication en- 
titled "Color: Universal Language and Diction- 
ary of Names," puts together well known color- 
order systems and methods of designating color. 
The Color Names Dictionary details the Inter- 
Society Color Council-NBS system of color des- 
ignations, which are described as "fast becom- 
ing the common denominator for color terminol- 
ogy used in science, art and industry." Copies 
of this NBS Special Publication 440 are priced 
at $3.35 (U.S.) each, and may be ordered from 
the Superintendent of Documents, Government 
Printing Office (Washington, D.C. 20402) . Ref- 
er to Stock No. 003-003-01705-1. 

From Eveline Marcus: "You always want news for 
the Newsletter: The street where I live has ch- 
anged its name: It will be, when (?) the sign 
is changed, Rua Prof. Ernest Marcus, 01246 Sao 
Paulo, S.P. Brazil. My number is 47, but it 
seems they intend to change the numbers too, 
quite unnecessarily. This is only a theoreti- 
cal announcement, as I continue to receive my 
mail in the P.O. Box 6994, 01000 S.P., but 
opisthobranchiologists will appreciate it. 

Furthermore, I intend to go abroad again 
this summer. I begin in Grahamstown, South 
Africa [Ed. Note: I had a postcard froi,. there 
in early May] with Margaret Smith of the Ich- 
thyological Intitute. I do not expect to meet 
Rudman though I would really like to, and I 
have written to him, whether he can make it. 
Then I will be at the Malacological Society 
meeting in May, later in Germany, Canada, East 
Coast of the U.S. Perhaps I can fit in the 
meeting of the AMU, 11-15 July, in Florida, but 
I can't count so far. In any case I will be in 
Florida, (Miami) some time, and hope to see 
friends and correspondents. 

I found Kerry Clark's discovery exciting; the 
same thing had happened to Hecht in 1895, Mem. 
Soc Zool. France, but he did not try to ex- 
plain it." 

In November, Hans Bertsch returned to U.C. Ber- 
keley to file his Ph.D. dissertation and pre- 
sent the departmental seminar. His thesis top- 
ic: "The Chromodoridinae Nudibranchs from the 
Pacific Coast of North America." Hans now has 
his doctorate, has married Car la, and returned 
with her to Chaminade College. Best of luck to 
both of them! 

From Dr. Ros : "Dr. J. A. Ortea (page 38 of O.N. 
1976) has written a very interesting thesis ab- 
out molluscs (specially opisthobranchs) of his 
country, Asturias, and has described two new 
genera and species, Hisse lice lis anadoni and 
Astureodoris rosi. I think he intends the 
partial publication of his material."

Personal notes 

Dr. Henning Lenche died August 4, 1977, after 
a brief illness. He was well known to all of 
uf for his work with nudibranchs and will be 
missed very much. His help to me was tremen- 
dous and many other researchers have been as- 
sisted with literature, letters, specimens 
and other work. 

We are also saddened by the recent death of 
Dr. George E. Radwin, Curator of Mollusks at 
the San Diego Museum of Natural History. 

From Philippe Bouchet: "I am just back from 
an expedition in the Northern Mozambique Chan- 
nel; we have been doing both SCUBA diving and 
dredgings down to 3,600m. Of course many op- 
isthobranchs have been collected but I am not 
planning any work on this material. Dr. J. 
Vacelet, a specialist on sponges in Marseille, 
was present on the expedition; so we paid some 
attention to associations between dorids and 
sponges. Phyllidia seemed to be very selec- 
tive, for instance. On my return, I visited 
Bill Rodman in Dar es Salaam and enjoyed some 
snorkelling at Kizndudri, Tanzania's marine 
static:", north of L>.../ ^^ Salaam" 

From Eveline Marcus: "Back home, had a great 
time, with some opisthos but many ir.ore nice 
old and new friends. In Capetown they waited 
for me with living Onchidclla and with pre- 
served ones, and Bouchet and H. Gantes and 
BrattstrBm sent Onchidellas, just as my MS on 
the Atlantic species, with key, was ready for 
press. Now I have to begin again! In Miami 
we collected some but then Anita came with 
wind and the Onchidellas stayed at home. Lon- 
don meeting witli Thompson and Bebbington and 
Edmunds and others. Mllnster with Luise Schm- 
ekel; in Montreal prorfs of Checklist in the 
JOURNAL OF MOLLUSCAN STUDIES, without the MS, 
and a long visit r o the McGill, University 
Libraries. A second copy was waiting for me 
here, and needed lots of corrections and ad- 
ditions. 

Reprints came oi my VELIGER article on Cijmno- 
toplax, r nd 5 (five) of my dear Tornatina as 
supplement of JOURNAL OF MOLLUSCAN STUDIES'. 



Terry Gosliner had just received it and liked it as 
much as I did. Washington, Boston-Nahant , Durham, 
Miami were further steps in my trip, nd now 1 sit 
at my Onchidellas and don't know where to begin, 
and at home I am buried in letters, reprints, and 
requests. Dr. Ortea sent me xeroxes of 600 page 
thesis. He has been studying a lot, about 200 pages 
on opisthobranchs . For the next months I expect the 
visit of Rosalie M. Vogel, just having finished her 
thesis on Doriopsilla , and Prof. Frederick Bayer, 
who has for many years been helpful with material, 
publishing and collecting." 

Dr. David R. Franz spent the summer in Maine, work- 
ing at the University of Maine's marine laboratory 
at Walpole (The Darling Center). Several aspects 
of the ecology of a guild of hydroid-eating nudi- 
branchs which feed specifically on Tubularia were 
studied. 

Dave Mulliner is working on several new species and 
one new genus of nudibranch from the Gulf of Califor- 
nia. 

From Kerry B. Clark (29 June 1977): "Sorry to be so 
quiet regarding the newsletter lately; we have a 
very heavy teaching load here (12 hours 4-H-) , and I 
had to rewrite some lectures this hear. 1 also 
wrote several manuscripts (one of them on sacoglos- 
sans, even), and have kicked my family out for the 
summer so that I can finish several manuscripts on 
opisthobranchs. 

A symposium was held at the Baruch Institute (Univ- 
ersity oi South Carolina) last month, in which two 
opsithobranch papers were presented. Marilyn 
Switzer-Dunlap and Mike Hadfield gave a paper on 
growth rates of Aplysiids, with some excellent data 
on reproductive output. If only we had more data 
like that, and any at all for the nudibranchs! 

I coauthored a paper on direct development of Flusia 
cauze, together with Mario Buracca and Hugh Stirts. 
In addition to a dexcription of the development, we 
presented data on uptake of chloroplasts by juven- 
iles, which we plan to explore further. 

I note that there is a rapid increase in papers on 
plastid svmbiosis of sacoglossans. In my opinion, 
gentle treatment of these animals is necessarv to 
obtain good results. It is unreasonable to extract 
data from animals maintained under unnatural condit- 



Vol. 1X122:8. OP1SIH03RANCH NEWSLETTER December_197Z,_ 



ions. Fresh material is important too. We 
find that animals brought into the lab increase 
their chlorophyll content if given their natur- 
al food in aquariums. This has necessitated a 
repeat of some work, even where animals were 
used several days within collection. We hope 
soon to present some comparative data on this 
for several species. Apparently some factor 
in si tu keeps chlorophyll levels lower, per- 
haps higher light intensities than we use. 

Workers should also report light intensities in 
units of Photosynthetic Active Radiation (PAR), 
e.g. microeinsteins; units such as lux and foot- 
candles do not account for differences in spec- 
tral quality. Standard units will be a necess- 
ity for comparative work later. 

We prefer to use indirect extimates of bior.ass. 
Fresh weights are quite unreliable; when a mol- 
lusc is handled, muscle contractions force 
blood through the soft skin (diapedesis) , cre- 
ating too much variability. We construct a 
'standard curve' by slow relaxation of slugs 
with MgCl2» measurement with optical micrcr.e- 
try, and oven-dry weighing. A log-log plot 
will give a straight line, and regressions typ- 
ically give a correlation coefficient of .95- 
.98, if a range of animal sizes is used. Live 
animals can then be measured by relaxation with- 
out direct weighing, saving time and results 
are more accurate than possible with wet weigh- 
ing. For more details, see my 1975 life cycles 
paper. 

In a follow-up to my note on large-tank maint- 
enance of opisthobranchs with coerocytic algae, 
1 think we may even have accidentally cultured 
some planktotrophic larvae to metamorphosis 
this way. Several weeks after introducing ma- 
ture animals (Oxynoe) and production of eggs, 
we have had cohorts of small juveniles appear, 
with a quite rapid growth rate. I know this 
may be hard to believe, but i am at a loss to 
explain it otherwise. Possibly the juveniles 
are able to resist the weak currents of the 
sub-gravel filter, as in the ' PlanktonkreiseL 1 
Later this summer I h.-pe to install several 
such tanks on the roof of our new building 
and test this problem. I'd be interested 
whether others have had similar happenings. 

Incidentally, if any of you are planning to 
collect in Florida, there have been some new 
laws concerning collecting. If you skin or 
SCL'BA dive, you m ust have a dive flag, unless 
in waters specifically defined for recreational 
swimming (i.e. a patrolled beach). Also, col- 
lection of all corals and fire corals, and sea 
fans, is. forbidden without a permit; such per- 
mits are not casualty issued. The marine pat- 
rol agents va:> greatly in temperament; many 
are quite nice and understanding, others will 
not give you a second chance. Also, while the 
law states that the gorgonians Gorgonia v-ar.ta- 
iina and C. flavellum are protected, most ag- 



ents can't tell the difference and possession of 
any gorgonian may result in a fine. 'I was only 
looking for Trit.inia, officer,' won't cut it. 
Penalties for violations of collecting laws can re- 
sult in confiscation of all equipment, and I think, 
even your boat if they need one at the local patrol 
headquarters. The state recreation areas are also 
generally off-limits to collectors, now, too, 
though apparently you can bring a boat in to the 
same area and collect with impunity. The days of 
free and easy collecting are fast vanishing, due to 
abuses by a very few."
